I am not new to installing Mint. This time around I used a live usb and proceeded to installation to the HDD. This is using all available disk space. At about half way through the installation the system stops and will not proceed (Retrieving file 197 of 197) USB: 32gb, free space on internal HDD 1T...

Re: Disk image of a full install of Mint 91 to a USB device

Yes and I believe I have been following instructions very carefully. I know I am not alone as this and other forums are reporting the problem of ubiquity writing to the internal hard drive. In my case I want to be able to boot a portable usb drive to a variety of other machines. If I remove the uefi...

Disk image of a full install of Mint 19 to a USB device

I have read literally hundreds of posts of the full installation of Linux Mint to a flash drive and it seems to me that the primary culprit in correctly booting the uefi flash drive is ubiquity. No matter what I do, ubiquity writes to the internal hard drive of my computer, the boot record during in...

Reposition the 'recycle' bin

This is an odd question. I have a full install of mint18 om a flashdrive (128gb) which I move from PC to PC (I travel a lot!) I know the recycle bin is there on a large desktop but cannot see it when I move to a smaller laptop. Turning the bin on and off doesn't help. I can see it in the file manage...

Missing Trash

I installed mint sarah a week or so ago and all went well. However I am missing the trash icon on the desktop. I know how to add the icon but it simply does not appear.
